BBQ Chicken and Collard Green Sushi


BBQ Chicken and Collard Green Sushi

We begin with the creation of “slaw”—slices of sweet bell peppers, grape tomatoes, and cucumber—marinate the trinity in rice vinegar, garlic,and ginger.  (measurements are important: 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 3 cloves minced garlic, 2 tbsp ginger.)

Next, start the sushi rice . I use 1 cup rice, 1 1/4 cup water, cover, bring to boil, reduce heat to low, cook for 20 min. Remove from heat, let stand for 10 min.

While the rice boils away, assemble the barbecue sauce, consisting of:
1 cup white vinegar
3 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp Sriracha (oh how I love thee)
1 tsp crushed red pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup apple juice (yeah, I stole my kids’ juice box)

Brown chicken tenderloins with blackened seasoning; shred chicken with a fork.

Place shredded chicken back on the stove-top, let it slow-dance with barbecue sauce, simmer on low, topless, for 10 minutes. Watch their love evaporate.
Now for the “nori”—collard leaves are great because they’re so large.  Cut away the stems from the middle, put them in a big-o pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, then polar plunge ‘em in ice water for 2 minutes, or until they get the shivers.

Pat the collards dry with a paper towel, and line up the usual suspects for layering.

Start with the widest end of the leaf facing you, and spread the sticky rice using a sushi paddle—”Yay!” exclaimed my food muse, “the paddle gets proper use instead of functioning like a wooden spoon!”  Yes, it’s all about perspectives, dear.
Layer the Carolina chicken barbecue, then the slaw…

A sushi mat is beneficial here, not necessary, just nice to have around.  Roll up the leaf, create 1 1/2 inch slices (wetting the blade between cuts helps), and eat those ugly end-pieces immediately.
Plate ‘em up and serve with chow-chow.  I also enjoy an artistic drizzle of Sriracha.
